GOING TO THE MOVIES

captiview_150x100Did you know that both Village and Hoyts Cinema chains offer the Captiview Closed Captioning System for people who suffer from hearing loss.

The system consists of a small LED display on a bendable support arm that fits into the theatre seat cup holder.  The easy to read screen is equipped with a high contrast display that comes with a privacy visor so it can be positioned directly in front of the movie patron with minimal impact or distraction to neighbouring patrons.  The system can receive captions from any seat within the auditorium.

Check for the CC (Closed Captions) against Movies showing at your local cinema.

Equipment is subject to availability, so it might be best to make enquiries in advance.   Ensure you have ID with you to leave when you borrow the equipment.

So now, enjoy the movies and make it a special time out with friends or family.
